Credibility of a real cyclist
Canadian Louis Garneau has been immersed in the cycling world his whole life, racing professionally and internationally for 13 years, racking up a total of 150 wins, and achieving the proud accomplishment of winning the Canadian Championship in individual pursuit. He took his passion for racing and put it towards creating protective gear for cyclists. As a cyclist, he knew what was missing in the market. In 1983, he and his wife, Monique Arsenault, began producing performance cycling clothing. In 1984, after competing in the Los Angeles Olympic Games, Garneau left cycling competition and went full time as the president and founder of Garneau cycling gear.
By 1988, Garneau introduced its first road biking helmet, and has been on the forefront of bicycling helmets ever since.
